Thanks for your contribution. [thumbsup]

I'm getting the feeling that there was a singular straw causing the camel's back to break. Is there a message being sent here of which we should be aware something that's been coming for a while? I guess I'm asking if this is a rally cry of sorts or merely a throwing in of the towel. I don't want to be the dufus standing here with my hands in my pockets as the protest goes on outside my door, ya know? If there's more to this, then pipe up. I don't mind taking action when something calls for it.

For me (yeah, I resigned too. But do I get any love? Nooooooo. [cheeky]) it boils down to:

I'm just not thrilled volunteering my time for a for profit company that doesn't appear to share my love of this place.

Well, they are changing to new board software, and with the change the DML will pretty much look like every other VS property. Spidey, DM, the other mods and I all were fighting this behind the scenes, but we've lost. We gave it our best shot, but it is pretty clear that we're day laborers in the view of VS, so most of us just didn't have the stomach to continue under those circumstances.

An unfortunate side effect--if the SF local board stays on the DML and doesn't move over to another forum--is that Michael and DM and I have all give up our mod powers. So it'll be up to Tigre to keep things in here organized. Oh boy. Starting prayin', y'all.

fook you sr. moore, eh ... not ALL us canucs are the bastard corporate overlord types ... like me, eh, i'm not, eh. :angel:

seriously, sorry to read this, and glad that the mods are standing up for what they believe in. i have seen what those canuc corporate twats have done to ducati.ms (the hypertard forum is the most used forum for hypertards, and is the ONLY reason i visit there) ... it sucks AND blows at the same time. i REALLY hope the monsterboard does not fall that way, but from the writing on the wall, i am guessing it will.

canada rules, eh!!! [thumbsup]

who started the board?

why am i now a senior member... how lame.

the amount of ads is ridiculous. completely without taste and so annoying it would make me
not want to shop at those sources via the links.

would not surprise me if they started putting in porn links.

the bot that reads the threads and posts a list of ads by the subject..

Spidey et al, thanks for all the work over the years!

And ... just start a new board. It's not like this is THE ducati monster site.

Small private networks are more interesting anyway. I'd gladly follow the old base here if it relocated.

Hey. Haven't been on for a while, surprised to see this.

Anyway, I wanted to also say thanks to you, MM and everyone going back to the beginning. I started following the DML in 2000, 8 years...

I don't quite understand the VS change but hope it's not the end of the DML.
